Just Zumba-ing Along
By CINDY KNIER
July 6, 2010
I’ll take this time to thank Kathy Kolb and Kolb Networks, Robin Van Auken, and web-meister Jake Davis for making this blog space possible. This is a new adventure for me, in addition to being appointed the Muncy Editor of www.northcentralpa.com, and it couldn’t have been accomplished without their encouragement. Having roots steeped first in crayon writings on the living room wall at a very tender age, I spent a few years writing, then as Managing Editor, for the Muncy Luminary before parting ways with Ogden Publishing in March 2009. I am Muncy-born, Muncy-grown and Muncy-proud.

In this heat, one of the few things anyone wants to consider is additional sweating, but sweating is what I and many others in this region have been doing as we Zumba. If you’re not already familiar with Zumba, it’s a one-of-a-kind fitness program which fuses hypnotic Latin rhythms and easy-to-follow moves that will blow you away, according to www.zumba.com.
Nearly every town in Lycoming County (and surrounding counties) has an established program underway. In Muncy, I know of two: one at the ELYMCA, and the other specifically for staff who are employed by the Muncy School District. However, the one in which I feel more comfortable participating in is held at the church I attend in Watsontown, because it is geared for women only. Because I’ve been diagnosed with ”Runner’s Knee,” I am cautious with the majority of the moves and design my own program to dance along with. No one minds, and if they do, that’s their problem to deal with, not mine. I’m too busy sweating and pulling precious oxygen into my lungs to concern myself by following through with all the correct movements!

Many thanks to the several boroughs in the area who hosted spectacular displays of fireworks over the weekend. My family and I attended those held in Montgomery and Williamsport, and it was greatly appreciated.

Belated anniversary wishes to Donald and Jeanne Berninger, who observed 58 years of wedded bliss on June 7.
